Clinique Chubby Stick - Review

Clinique Image

I have a soft spot in my heart for Clinique. It was the first high end department store brand that I ever purchased. My first foray into Clinique was the 3-Step skincare system which I am still using 18 months later. I loved it so much I went back to my favourite Clinique counter (Myer Bendigo) a couple of months later and purchased foundation, eyeshadow, mascara, eyeliner well pretty much everything I need to do my make up and proceeded to throw out a lot of my other drugstore products.

I was super excited to see Clinique were releasing Chubby Sticks last year and I could not wait to get my mitts on some. I actually made a special trip to a Clinique counter an hour away to get them (I've said it before, I am a beauty addict). I purchased two that day and have since purchased another four but my Mum nicked one and being a super daughter, I let her keep it so its not shown here.

Chubby Sticks are a lip product I reach for very often. They are a tinted lip balm that I find very moisturising. I get dry lips very easily and there are some days that I can't wear lipstick but I still want colour and shine on my lips.

I love how these apply a nice veil of colour that is moisturising and lasts for a good couple of hours before reapplication is needed. They come packaged in a cute wind up crayon looking tube. This is great because unlike some other gloss sticks, you do not need a sharpener.

I also love that Clinique called them 'Chubby Stick' in a world where skinny is in, I think its great that Clinique weren't afraid to step out of the norm. Plus I think the name is cute. :-)

The shades I have in order of left to right in the photo above are:
  • 02 Whole Lotta Honey - a nice nude that is not dark on the lips
  • 04 Mega Melon - a brown, pink that is slightly coral on the lips
  • 05 Chunky Cherry - a bright red that is quite sheer on the lips
  • 06 Woppin' Watermelon - a bright pink (my favourite)
  • 07 Super Strawberry - a darker pink that looks plumish on the lips

There is eight shades in total but the others are browns and I personally don't wear much brown on my lips. I love my Chubby Sticks and if you don't have one already I suggest you run (and fast) to your nearest counter to get your own!

Availability: Clinique counters,
Price: AUD$35 for 3g

Do you love Chubby Sticks?


  1. I have a chunky cherry chubby stick and I love it. I love how the colour is so buildable, I can get a hint of red or a really bright lip. I agree, definitely one to have in your makeup kit :)

  2. I LOVE chubby sticks! I only have one (chunky cherry) but am planning to add the whole range when I finish P10P, they're so fun!

  3. I also have this in Mega Melon. Cutest packaging ever! I actually find them to be a little drying. I remember when I first had this applied at the Clinique counter by a sales rep, it felt so wet and moisterising (perhaps she put way too much on me!)
